Mike Q is an American Artist and is one of the leading figures of the US's long-running (but still largely underground) ballroom/vogue-house culture. Based in New Jersey, the 28 year old producer is not only one of the busy DJs, but he also heads up his own "Qween Beat" Label and turns out a steady stream of vogue and ballroom tracks, re-edits, and remixes.
His spine-snapping DJ sets are seriously in demand at the moment, not just at the well-established vogue nights of his native culture and up and down the USA's East Coast, but beyond (London, Paris, Tokyo ETC), and his exploits have been earning column inches and full spreads in press such as Vanity Fair, XLR8R, Urban Socialites, Paper Mag, Fact, The Fader, ID Mag, Time Out London, The NY Times, and more. His music has reached the likes of celebrities such as female rappers Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Yo-Yo & Azealia Banks.
GHOST DUB is the DJ moniker of Rachel Dubuc from the electro-acoustic duo, Ghost Feet (Dropping Gems).
I'VE GOT A HOLE IN MY SOUL
I'VE GOT A HOLE IN MY SOUL is Portland's original Soul and RnB dance party.
9pm | $3.00 day of show
The stomping, storming sounds of American roots music are laid down at 45rpm, all night until the sweaty end. Six years strong, this truly legendary dancefloor institution has moved to Holocene and takes place every second Thursday. Our space is decorated with love and care just for the occasion, with an eye for that sharp, sexy mod style. We invite all of you dapper gents and stylish ladies to dress to impress on our dancefloor.
Thanks to the deep crates and incomparable prowess of DJ Beyondadoubt, this party is popping from the very first record laid down. Hailing from Memphis, Beyondadoubt was raised on Dirty South bass music, Soul, Gospel, regional Southern Rap and Bounce music. Channeling these roots and employing her collection of rare and vintage vinyl, this nationally renowned career DJ of over a decade takes us on a journey deep into the fiercely raw emotional landscape of Soul and Rhythm & Blues. Get into it.

Prepare a five-minute story about boundaries--the brink, the border, the barriers. Think meddlesome in-laws and visits from outlaws. Mark your territory! Color outside the lines! Bring us stories about the ball that went out of bounds, the fences you've hopped, or that time you got flashed on the subway. When is it time to draw the line?
How to tell a story?
How it Works:
6:45pm Sign up to tell a story, volunteer to be on a judging team or just sit back and listen.
8:00pm (SHARP) - We'll pick the first name and the show will begin. Each teller will have 5 minutes to tell his or her tale. After each story, the judges confer, and give a score. The teller with the highest score becomes our StorySLAM winner. The winner will compete with the year's other winners in our next GrandSLAM Championship.
Be Forewarned: The Moth is for TRUE STORIES. OK, there won't be a fact-checker there, and the FBI probably won't dig into your files to verify the names and dates and places, but please know, emphatically, The Moth is not for fiction stories. The tiny fictions and lies we tell ourselves ARE part of our "true stories" but that one about you, Obama, Gandhi and Einstein up in a spaceship eating brownies... not so much. The Moth is NOT a venue for readings; it is a venue for tellings.
No notes, papers, or cheat sheets allowed. Contestants are judged on sticking to the five-minute time frame, sticking to the theme and having a story that sticks -- one that has a conflict and a resolution.
No standup routines please: The Moth LOVES funny people but requires that all funny people tell funny STORIES.
Steer clear of meandering endings: Your last line should be clear in your head. Start in the action and set up the stakes.
